Replacing an old double oven, we had several options in our price range. This model was on the short list because the 27" model wasn't a stripped down version of the 30" unit. We weren't looking to remodel just yet, so keeping the cabinet size was important. I think that most of my comments should apply to the single-oven model and the 30" version too. As I mentioned in the summary, this oven is pretty loud. It's not a convection oven -- it doesn't have a fan that circulates air inside the oven chamber. It does, however, have a blower in the cabinet that I assume maintains a more even wall temperature. That blower is a lot louder than the convection fan we had in a unit in a previous home. It's our loudest appliance in the kitchen, excepting the disposal. Louder than the range exhaust fan, fridge or dishwasher. Not a big problem, baking is usually done in the daytime here, but it's something you just won't notice in the showroom. Overall, for about the same money we could have dual self cleaning (this one) or top-only clean + mild convection. We opted for the double clean, and haven't regretted it. Baking doneness is even enough, I think the cabinet blower helps with that. And it's electric, not gas, so evenness isn't that big of a worry anyway. Preheat to 350F takes under 8 minutes in a 72 degree kitchen, and the display shows the temp. during that time. It's got two clean modes. The regular one is the type you're used to: oven door is locked shut for 3 or 4 hours while the oven is cranked up to maximum temperature and spills are burned to ash. The kitchen gets hot, and a little smoke wafts around as all those drippings are incinerated. The other clean mode is the "steam clean." You follow the instructions on the display, pour a measured amount of water on the "floor", close the door and let it go. Since it's just boiling the water it doesn't get very hot at all, and the whole cycle takes about a half hour. When done, you wipe the (hopefully) loosened gunk off and mop up the excess water -- it leaves more than I expected. Recent messes are generally softened enough to get them fairly clean. It's not a replacement for the high-temp clean, but is more of a maintenance step to be used periodically, especially after making a mess. The control panel/display is very good. Meaningful text on a large display prompts you through all the steps needed to clean, bake, broil, use the cook timer (which turns off the oven when done) and the kitchen timer. The kitchen timer is independent from the cook time, so you can use them both at once. The only function I can't figure out from the display prompts alone is the delayed bake ("start time"). I tried it for grins, didn't figure it out, and never bothered to check the manual -- probably won't do it, since I don't figure I'll ever use that anyway. Bonus points for the controls: If you enter a time like "90 minutes" (instead of 1:30), is doesn't freak out and turn off the oven like a couple other brands out there (you know who you are). It just counts down the 90 minutes -- just like you'd expect it to. The doors and windows stay cool enough to be touched without discomfort. This is a plus with kids in the house. Quirks. The cabinet blower keeps going after the oven is turned off until it's cooled down. Also, every so often, the oven shuts down for a second or two, then resumes everthing like nothing happened. Temp stays set, clock doesn't lose time, timer keeps right on counting. If it weren't for the noisy blower, you'd probably never notice. It's not frequent or predictable enough for a service call, but I might do it before warranty is up.

I purshased the oven and after using it for one day I told the dealer that it was unacceptable due to the high sound level that I presume is from the cooling fan. It sounds l;ike my microwave when it is running. It will be removed from my house by the dealer and I will buy another brand. I believe the product is defective

Fan too loud
from Ball Ground, GA, United States
I am very unhappy with this new double oven due to the fan that is very loud and runs from preheating until 20 or more minutes after you turn the oven off. It is so annoying, I am going to replace it as soon as possible. It is a shame because the oven is very attractive.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great features and priceing
from Paulina, Louisiana
I bought this oven to replace one that was 27 years old. It was a very good oven and served me well with my growing family.
Thank God it fits!!!
By Chef Mary
from Vienna, VA
We had to replace our older set of ovens and couldn't find any that would fit in the space without having to make many changes. This model is the only model that fits!!! It is attractive and I love using it. My only issue is that my arms are too short to reach into the oven with the doors open, I have to go the side of the oven to reach in.
BIG AND BEAUTIFUL. CAN COOK THREE THINGS OR MORE AT ONE TIME!

whirlpool double ovens
from San Antonio, TX, United States
I replaced double ovens that were 27 years old. I am very pleased with the look of the new double ovens. They are easy to set, warm up quickly to the set temperature and cook evenly. The only thing that I am not crazy about, is the noise they make. My old ovens were absolutely quiet, these have a fan noise the entire time they are heating up, cooking and cooling down. If I had known they were so noisy I probably would have picked a different brand.
Wow what an oven!
from Canoga Park, Los Angeles, CA, United States
We have had this oven for over one month and we are very pleased with it. Baked a pie that came out great with golden brown crust and a Perfect Peach berry cobbler. No issues with the fan noise that other reviews have referenced. It is cooling down. We installed a Whirlpool Microwave above the ovens. A beautiful addition to our recent kitchen remodel.
